Sponsor Formation Program for Catholic Health Care

CHA Sponsor Formation Program for Catholic Health Care

The new program for CHA members will prepare individuals to serve as current or prospective members of Juridic Persons to carry out the health ministry of the Catholic Church.

The in-depth formation program will incorporate group interaction, personal reflection and presentations about key dimensions of sponsorship including theology, ethics, canon law, Catholic social tradition, discernment and spiritual growth.

The program takes place over 18 months in four weekend sessions from Oct. 2015 to March 2017. Participants are selected and endorsed by a sponsoring organization that is a member of CHA. Enrollment is limited and is invitation-only. 

For more information, contact Sr. Mary Haddad, RSM, CHA vice president, mission services, mhaddad@chausa.org, (314) 253-3422.
